Charming.

I guess the bishops are "only following Francis."

Quote
In the book “Let Us Dream,” the 83-year-old pontiff addressed the killing of Floyd, a Black man who died after a Minneapolis cop pressed his knee on his neck for several minutes.

“Abuse is a gross violation of human dignity that we cannot allow and which we must continue to struggle against,” he wrote of Floyd and the wave of protests that erupted across the world after his death.

But the pontifex criticized others demonstrating against COVID-19 lockdowns “as if measures that governments must impose for the good of their people constitute some kind of political assault on autonomy or personal freedom!”

"as if"
 :wag:

The man is completely out of touch, since he does not bother to figure into his remarks the violations of justice, not to mention the deaths, caused by the lockdown.

Jorge is so unsurprising.
Padre Pio: Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.
